The Watson Boulevard Gate into Robins Air Force Base will close most of the weekend for repairs.

Barring bad weather, the gate will close from 2 a.m. Saturday to 5 p.m. Sunday. The Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard Gate will be open during the time the Watson gate is closed.

Also, starting Tuesday all three inbound lanes of the Watson Gate will be open weekdays between 6 and 8 a.m. Currently only the center and right lanes are open, and the left lane is closed.

Once the change is made, traffic in the left lane will merge to the center lane after passing through the gate, according to a base release.
